To Infinity and Beyond PowerPoint

This post is primarily aimed at the PGCE students who came along to the session this afternoon.

I know that I may have bombarded you with alternatives to PowerPoint tools, so I’ve put everything together in one place. Remember, please get in touch if you need some help!

Why PowerPoint?

The main tip is to think carefully about whether PowerPoint is the correct tool to be using.  Would it be better to:

  • Get pupils outside?
  • Use a worksheet, model, demonstration, video….?

What to do next?

•Start a Blog

•Read teacher blogs – some of the links below are great places to start.

•Get on to Twitter

•Come along here on 8th March – Free RGS Network Meeting

You could also check out the Partners in Learning YouTube channel for ideas of how Office can be used. For example, this Innovid shows you how to add interactive text boxes.

What other resources are there?

Remember the caveats given during the session – talk things over with your school mentor, and if you’re unsure, please get in touch! What follows is a series of links to tools and ideas that you could use when appropriate. I’ve generally linked to my own blog posts so that you can see the context in which these tools were used.

Those where the ideas shared today, and don’t forget to get in touch!
